I’m flipping between the Devils game (MSG+) and the Penguins game (Vs), and I should note that Dominic Moore and Nik Antropov were both healthy scratches for Toronto, as was Mark Recchi for TB. GM Brian Burke said that they had deals on the table for both players.
Some more irresponsible rumor mongering from me, but with Zipay quoting Torts that the Rangers are looking for size, I can’t help but think Antropov is the big bodied scorer the Rangers made an offer for.
I personally don’t think the Rangers should be mortgaging future picks or prospects for this season. They simply aren’t built to compete with Boston or Washington in s 7 game series. That said, if they can dump some long term salary and resign Antropov, I’m all for it. I think I’m giving Sather too much credit there though.
A notable non-scratch was Miro Satan, who is in the lineup for Pittsburgh tonight despite being placed on waivers earlier today.
Also, a side note. I’ll be live blogging the trade deadline tomorrow. So check back often tomorrow.
